I hope that everyone had an amazing Fall Break! No kid is ready to return back to school after a week off, so for the Monday following the break the fourth graders completed a STEM challenge. Students had to use materials given and create a catapult that would launch a small pom-pom at least 2 feet forward. Together they worked through the engineering process to create something amazing. I was surprised at just how different all of the catapults turned out. Some were successful and some were not, but everyone had a blast and can't wait for the next STEM challenge! (I only wish that I had gotten a picture of each team with their catapult. Next time I'll be sure to!)
